Sunday Stash Shopping #91: Millionaire

I remember watching Sam of Pixiwoo use an eye shadow from Rimmel called Millionaire, and I wanted it. Back then, Rimmel was still available in my country, but they pulled out. When I decided to actually go look for it, they were gone. Recently, I went to Australia for a short holiday. Millionaire is a very popular shade because it’s sold out at a lot of chemists (pharmacy/drugstore). I finally found it, and I also picked up a mascara to try. I was tempted to pick up a few lipsticks as well, but I have way too many as it is.

Here on my lids is Millionaire, as a single colour, Rimmel Lash Accelerator mascara and Dolly Wink liquid liner. What kind of shade is Millionaire? It’s like rose gold, with more beige on my skin. It’s also slightly shimmery and quite sheer so it’s flattering and natural at the same time. On my cheeks is Chanel Joues Constraste in 76 Frivole and on my lips, Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in 26 Energie.

 

 

I’ve been wearing this eye combo a lot lately, changing out the lip colour for a different look. It’s fast and easy. Hope you have a lovely week ahead!

  • Did I tell you I love your hair..? <3

    I did not know about Millionaire. Maybe I should look for it. I haven't bought many drugstore makeup lately. I think it's good that you skipped their lipsticks. I tried more than a few but never really liked any. How is the mascara, btw? I hear good things about them. 🙂

      Thanks Lena! They have so many mascaras, and I picked one with the slimmest brush. The brush separates the lashes really well, but it’s kind of prickly, like the Benefit ones. I have to be careful when I apply the mascara so I don’t poke my eye out, but I love how much smaller the brush is so it gets to all my lashes. It coats very evenly, separates but doesn’t volumize too much at once. I’d need at least 2 coats, and the good news is, it doesn’t clump. For the price, it’s not too bad!

  • I tried looking for Millionaire here but couldn’t find it! Only able to get hold of it through Amazon and eBay and not at the price that I am willing to pay too. Ugh! How do you like Rimmel Lash Accelerator mascara? I never have any luck with Rimmel mascaras so far but if you say you like it then I will buy it. I mean I found my holy grail mascara because of you!

      Hahaha this is no Velvet Noir, that’s for sure. The brush is slimmer, and more prickly, and it takes about 3 coats to get one coat of volume as the Velvet Noir. But you can get 4 of these mascaras for the price of 1 Velvet Noir, so…
      I actually do like this Lash Accelerator. It separates my lashes really well and because of the smaller brush, it’s easy to get to every little short lash of mine. I’m actually quite happy I bought a backup. But like I said, the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir is still HG material! The price though…

  • Thats looks like a great shade to combine with any bright lippie! Just commented again on your other hair post, but your hair is cute!

      Thanks Sofia! Millionaire is a surprise hit. I didn’t expect much, but I’ve been using it when I’m not sure what eye shadow I want to use. So instead of just going bare, I’d just swipe this on. So easy 🙂
